Margaret Mary "Maggie" Dufficy was born on 21 Dec 1886 in house 5 in Lisduff, Ballygarden. She was the last of ten children born to Bridget Flanagan and Martin Dufficy, who died a few months before Maggie was born. 

She attended Clooncullane National School up until sixth class when she dropped out to help her mother manage their small farm. Her second cousins lived up the road from them and would likely have helped out. Her brother Thomas died in 1899 when she was just twelve.

Maggie died on 17 Mar 1965, aged seventy nine.
